A Genetic Screen for Genes Involved in Tissue Remodeling
Tissue remodeling is vital to the health of any multicellular organism. Drosophila melanogaster, which undergoes tissue remodeling during metamorphosis, provides an excellent model to study this process due to highly ...
Genetic Analysis of Programmed Cell Death
The larval fat bodies of Drosophila melanogaster are responsible for storing energy from the larval feeding stages for use during pupal development. In most larval tissues, programmed cell death (PCD) is triggered by two ...
The role of Aurora-A in Drosophila melanogaster fat body cell migration
After Drosophila melanogaster undergoes metamorphosis, the fly breaks free of the pupal case in a process called eclosion. Pharate adult lethality is a phenomenon in which the developed fly fails to eclose and dies inside ...
